Cool New Databases:

Highlighting How New WMU Library Resources get to you

 The University Libraries provides access to hundreds of database and thousands of online journals, newspapers, e-books, streaming music and videos, and more for WMU students, faculty, and staff.  The Libraries' collection, which you search from the home page, is continually updated with new electronic resources that support the WMU curriculum.  The Electronic Resources and Serials Unit within the Technical Services Department coordinates the acquisition, management, and payment for these resources. Many library professionals help make them findable, searchable, and usable for the WMU community.

Recently the University Libraries have arranged for access to Privco, a private company information database; a physics e-book collection; Rock'sBackPages, a database of articles on popular music; and the World Cinema Collection, a streaming video database highlighting films from all over the globe. 

A list of the new databases, including a fuller description and a link to the resource added to the collection is at: or from the Library home page click on Databases A-Z, then click on New Databases for the newest acquisitions.
